Study shows PKP Kinesiology reduces Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Diane Poole of Canberra Kinesiology undertook a small study of 10 people to test the effectiveness of the Professional Kinesiology Protocol (PKP) in reducing Stress, Anxiety and Depression

The 10 participants completed a self assessment form (The Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale –short version DASS-21) before and after attending 3 Kinesiology sessions over 6-10 weeks.

The study results showed the PKP Kinesiology protocol reduced the stress, anxiety and/or depression levels in the study group and the average improvements were:

  • stress level  – 56.87%
  • anxiety level  – 53.83%
  • depression level  – $71.59%

Kinesiology Research on Chronic Lower Back Pain

Published in a peer reviewed scientific and medical journal.

A clinical trial of Professional Kinesiology Practice (PKP) for chronic low back pain undertaken through the University of Southamptom in the UK and led by Dr Susan Eardley (Fellow ICPKP) has been published in the July 2013 edition of Forschende Komplementärmedizin.

“Back pain is a common problem which is not easy to treat using conventional methods” says Dr Eardley.  “The results of this study indicate that PKP may be a very powerful intervention for chronic back pain and we need to perform further work to confirm our findings.  If we can repeat our results in a much larger study then the benefits to PKP as a profession would be immense”.

How does Kinesiology work?

Kinesiology uses gentle muscle ‘testing’ or ‘monitoring’ as a versatile tool for identifying the:

  • underlying cause of a person’s health or life problem, and
  • best therapy techniques to correct the imbalance.

To explain, the body keeps a record or memory of every move, thought, emotion and stress it has ever had and the muscle testing is able to tap into this subconscious memory. Muscles respond to shifts in energy. When the Kinesiologist challenges the body with a stressful stimulus or memory (eg a thought, feeling, movement, chemical, food, memory etc), there is a corresponding drop in energy flow in the body and the muscle test will present as ‘weakened’ or ‘unlocking’. In this way the Kinesiologist can pinpoint the root cause of a peron’s illness or problem, and further identify the best therapy technique to re-balance the body.

Muscle testing takes the guess work out of the healing process because the body will indicate what it needs to perform better.

Once the body’s energy systems (eg the physical, emotional, chemical, mental and spiritual systems) are in balance around the ‘problem’ or ‘desired outcome’ the body’s natural healing force is freed and strengthened. This enables the person to progress their healing, overcome their problems, perform better and be happier.

Why is Kinesiology so effective?

Kinesiology gives you the opportunity to improve your quality of life so that you ‘thrive’ rather than just ‘survive’. Canberra Kinesiologist Diane Poole has the training, tools, techniques and experience to help you create better health and happiness in your life.


  • is one of the few therapies that enables the body to ‘talk’ by indicating, via muscle testing, what the underlying problems is, why it is there and what is needed to help overcome it. This helps ensure each person is getting the best support for their body as indicated by their body to achieve the outcomes they desire.
  • addresses more than symptoms. Kinesiology is an ‘holistic’ natural therapy in that it assesses and balances a health or life problem from all dimensions including the physical, emotional, structural, chemical, electrical, mental, spiritual, social systems.
  • is multi-disciplinary in that it uses a wide variety of techniques and modalities to balance the body – not just one or two – see Therapy Techniques above.
  • helps identify and resolve the underlying subconsious, emotional and often self-sabotaging blocks that are limiting a person from progressing their health, overcoming their problems or achieving their personal goals. Diane Poole has the techniques and experience to facilitate these processes in a supportive and gentle way.
  • honours and enhances each person’s innate and individual ability to heal themselves and to perform at his or her best. We all have the potential to heal and better ourselves, it’s just knowing how. Kinesiology has the tools and techniques to facilitate this process for each individual so that they feel personally empowered and in charge of their lives.
  • provides benefits to such a wide variety of health and well being issues because Kinesiology balances the ‘whole’ person e.g. the person’s body functions, their thoughts, attitudes, feelings, their related past experiences, their nutrition. Sometimes it can be as simple as changing a person’s view about the burdens they carry. The healing that can come from this is subtle, but profound.
  • releases the physical and emotional stress symptoms and detects and releases the original ‘stress’ that caused the problem in the first place, even if it was years ago.
  • identifies and provides the ongoing strategies and support a person needs to achieve lasting improvements in their lives, such as nutritional support, change and stress management techniques, goal achievement etc
  • is good for people of any age, gender or ability. Kinesiology is very safe and effective for children and babies.
  • is gentle, safe, non-invasive and empowering. Most people after a Kinesiology session feel more confident, calmer and happier.
  • is very complementary of other medical and alternative/natural therapies. People have often reported that Kinesiology has increased the benefits of other treatments and alleviated adverse side effects.
